Crystal Reports – What exactly are you trying to find out?

13 Apr

Recently I went on a Crystal Reports training course and immediately had the opportunity to put what I had learnt into practice.

Other than the technical aspects of Crystal Reports, what I found most interesting from the training was the emphasis on knowing exactly what are you trying to find out before designing the report.

With Crystal Reports, it is easy to dump data fields and create a gigantic report that offers nothing but pages of information. But if you are going to create a report, you need to be specific. Being specific allows you to design a report that people can quickly analyze and draw conclusions from.
